My sophomore year of high school, I realized that I wanted to study as much math as possible and after 16 years, my passion for the subject has only magnified. I enjoy teaching everyone about the wonders of mathematics and the confidence one will gain after mastering the most difficult concepts.

I graduated in 2007 from California State University with a degree in Pure Mathematics and I am currently pursuing a master's degree in Education. In the next few years I expect to continue my studies of mathematics with a master's degree in Math. I have been tutoring for the past 8 years and have been teaching high school for the past 6 years. As a tutor I believe I provide a unique experience to students as I challenge students with my own questions related to the topic at hand and help with reinforcing fundamental concepts.

In my free time I enjoy all types of sports including basketball, soccer, football, racquetball, swimming, tennis, boxing and running. I am also an animal lover and an advocate for the protection of wildlife endangered species.

I firmly believe that my help will change your perception of mathematics forever. My enthusiasm for the content is contagious to say the least. Do not let another day go by without experiencing the beauty of mathematics and realizing your own potential to succeed.
